    Speaking of cheap wines, I recently went to Walmart and found Oak Leaf on sale for $3.97 a bottle. A lady next to me had a shopping cart full of it. She said it was great for the price so I bought a few bottles of different varieties. Tonight I opened the cabernet sauvignon. It is a little acidic but the flavor is not bad.Have you tried the Oak Leaf and if so what is your opinion?

    Hi John! Thanks for stopping by. Ok, so I've had the Walmart Oak Leaf too. Only here in Austin it's just $2.97 a bottle. Heh.

    You're absolutely right about it. A little acidic, but tastes like wine. Not awful, not great. If you're into really cheap, pick up a box of Franzia Cabernet or Merlot – 5 liters (7 bottles) for about $13-15 per box. That averages to about $2 per bottle, and it's a less acidic wine than the Oak Leaf.

    Have fun!

    $2.97???? must be leftovers from Houston. Tonight I am trying the Oakleaf Shiraz. I think they clarifed this one with a centrafuge but not bad once you make it past the first glass :) thank you for the Franzia suggestion. Nothing is better than a big box of good inexpensive wine.
